I'd imagine the package would be valuable to a team that is wanting a better chance to be a playoff-team / cup contender... The pieces would definitely help... However, the pieces would also help the Canucks if the right team at the right time isn't there to return something real significant... I'd think the right team at the right time would be willing to part with the right value to get that... But, it's difficult to find the right team at the right time... Why trades can take months (and longer) before they get done...
Just throwing it out there that I wouldn't be opposed to trading Hansen (like I wouldn't be opposed to trading Luongo), given that Kassian and Schneider are on the team... The 1st too... I'd just as happily keep that as well, if the return isn't there... If ignoring a return price, I'd imagine that some teams out there would be happy with Luongo and Hansen both on their team... Again, if the return isn't there, not available...
Not that I disagree with what you are proposing, or the thought process in getting there, but by adding different pieces with either A.) specialize the package so much only a few teams would be interested or B.) add different odds and ends (Edler, Hansen, Luongo, our 1st....) that hold some value of their own, and make a general package for another team, meaning we likely take back pieces we don't, as a majority of teams aren't in need of all three pieces (a high end starter, top pairing LD and a 3rd line anchor plus a late first draft pick).
I personally can't think of a team that "needs" both pieces in a bad way, but where the piece they don't need is something shiny thrown in if we are robbing them blind.
